Event description

Description

Running from Friday evening through to a very busy Sunday, you will join Lee for an introduction to sketchbook keeping and work from the beautiful South Pembrokeshire coast.


SATURDAY

We will meet at Oriel Q at 9.30am, the local gallery in Narberth, for a few hours of drawing techniques and to explore a range of creative materials. A packed lunch will be provided from the lovely folk at Plum Vanilla Cafe.

From there we will travel to Picton Point, a beautiful and secluded estuary spot on the banks of the eastern Cleddau river. Here, you will work from the dramatic environment and experiment with the techniques and processes learnt in the gallery session.

N.B. If the weather is against us we will spend the afternoon drawing at Narberth Museum Bonded Stores.

We will travel back to Greenhill Studio to discuss the day’s works and reflect on the techniques and materials used.

In the evening there will be opportunity to join us around the fire for an introduction to whittling cooking utensils.

SUNDAY

At 9.30am we will travel to the disused ironworks at Heritage park to continue our sketchbook work. (There is an element of cover if the weather is against us!) We will then walk through the woods to Wiseman’s Bridge and there you will have the opportunity to draw from the dramatic coastline or the elevated bluebell woods.

There we will have a picnic lunch before walking around the coast to Saundersfoot harbour. For the afternoon session you will have freedom to explore the seaside town and apply the knowledge you’ve learned to continue filling your sketchbook pages.

At 4.30 we will return to Greenhill Studio for a de-briefing of the weekend’s activities and a farewell cuppa.


Accomodation is available at Greenhill and can be booked seperately at https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/31606487?guests=1&adults=1
